Baker County is nestled in at the top of Florida in between Nassau, Duval, Clay, Bradford, Union and Columbia counties. It is one of the more serene counties located within Florida with only about 46 residents per square mile.
Needless to say, Bake County is a popular place for enjoying the outdoors. Residents and visitors take advantage of the great opportunities for boating, fishing, hunting, camping and more. Some of the best spots are St. Mary’s Shoals Park and the John M. Bethea State Forest.
Macclenny is the county seat of Baker County and only about 30 miles from downtown Jacksonville. And although the town is more rural, there are things to do within a short drive from Macclenny, such as visiting the Florida Museum-Natural History in Gainesville or catching the Ghost Tours of St. Augustine.
Bail is the dollar amount set for the release of a pretrial inmate by the courts. The money is used to assure the defendant will appear at all of his court appearances after being released. However, not all crimes committed allow a suspect to be eligible for bail. The best example would be someone who has been arrested for first-degree murder. If bail is paid directly to the courts for an inmate’s release, all but court fees will be refundable if the defendant abides by all requirements for his pretrial release.
A jail bond (aka: bail bond) is a surety bond arranged by a Florida licensed bail bondsman. The bail bond agent allows a defendant the ability to be released from jail while awaiting his court date on a small portion of the full bail amount originally set by the courts.
A Florida bondsman will charge ten percent of the full bail amount set by the magistrate judge for a state crime and fifteen percent for a federal crime. This fee is also referred to as the ‘bail premium’. For an example, if bail is set at $5,000, the arrestee would pay a bondsman $500 for a state bond and $750 for a federal bond. Any money paid to the bail bonds agent is non-refundable.
Once a bond has been posted to the jail by a bail bondsman in Florida, it typically takes anywhere from two to twelve hours for the inmate to be released. For this reason, it’s important to hire an experienced and reliable bondsman for the job.
